LG L Fino possibly coming to Verizon

Another day, another unannounced phone appears at the FCC. This calls for an investigation, so let's see what clues we have to work with. 

First and foremost, the phone in question is listed as the LG VS810PP. It is made to run on CDMA networks and supports LTE on bands 4 and 13. From this we can deduct that the said LG phone is headed to Verizon Wireless. 

After some more digging in the FCC documents we found the handset's dimensions. The LG VS810PP is 5.02 inches tall and 2.67 inches wide (that's 127.5 by 67.9 millimeters), with a screen diagonal size of 4.5 inches (115 mm). Oh, and according to the phone's Wi-Fi certification papers, Android 4.4 KitKat comes loaded out of the box. The only recent LG phone matching this description is the LG L Fino – an entry-level phone with a 480 by 800-pixel display resolution, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM.

Interestingly, the LG L Fino has a 1900mAh battery, according to its official specifications, while the phone listed at the FCC has a 8Wh, 3.8V cell, which equals 2100mAh. Therefore, the LG VS810PP could be a modified variant of the Fino, or it even might be a completely different phone which happens to have the exact same proportions. 

Whatever the case is, we're expecting Verizon to announce this LG Android phone sooner than later. We're guessing that it will be an affordable one, possibly paired with a pre-paid plan from the carrier.
